UW System Wants Exemptions

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) The University of Wisconsin-Madison wants an exemption from the state's open-records law that would allow it to keep research information private until it's published or patented. The the university is circulating a two-page document among Republican lawmakers suggesting language for a standalone bill.

The university says its proposal was prompted by a change in federal patent law. Patents are now awarded on a first-to-file basis, meaning a rival could use the open-records law to gain early access to UW-Madison research and then try to file a patent first.

But the proposal doesn't sit well with Bill Lueders, who runs the Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council. He says current law already allows UW to deny requests if it can cite a legitimate reason.

Homeowner Relief In Minnesota

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota homeowners facing foreclosure would have additional protection under a bill Gov. Mark Dayton is expected to sign. The legislation requires banks and servicers to make loan modifications to everyone who's eligible. Also, loan servicers can't sell off a home until there's a clear yes or no on the loan modification.

University of Minnesota consumer law expert Prentiss Cox says a key element of the new law gives homeowners more time to modify their loan, thereby holding off a foreclosure sale. Property owners would have an additional 30 days under the state law.

Foreclosures have dropped in Minnesota in recent years, but remain high. Last year there were nearly 18,000 foreclosures, down about 16 percent from the previous year, but nearly triple the 2005 level.

For the second time in a month, there's a claim of missing evidence in a high-profile court case in La Crosse.

This time, the accusation comes in a murder case set for trial in July. Attorneys for Jeff Lepsch are seeking to have murder charges dismissed, claiming that security video from the crime scene might have been partially erased. Lepsch is accused of killing May's Photo owner Paul Petras and his teenage son A.J. during a robbery last fall. La Crosse DA Tim Gruenke disputes the defense claim of evidence being missing.

 

Last week, Areschial Page pled 'no contest' to armed robbery and received probation, after it was revealed that La Crosse police accidentally erased a recording of a witness in his case.
